    Ulan lang stand still na naman metro manila. This is what you call overdevelopment. The metropolis is alrweady having a hard time sustaining itself. Pano pa kaya yong mga bagong condo projrcts sprouting sa metro.

      nakakatakut na actually. konting ulan lang, baha na ang metropolis at iba pang lugar na kalapit nito. panu pa kung isang malakas na bagyo ang tumama sa ating bayan.
       wala pa silang planong maisayos ito at bagkus dirediretso lang ang pag “develop” ng metro. ang nagign solusyon, condo/high rise. maliit na lupain, pero mataas na building.
      hindi babahain ang mga bumili ng units. di na naisip na i decongest ang metro manila….

    sana naman ma check if yong mga squatters na umalis dati sa mga waterways dahil binaha sila ay baka nagsibalikan na naman doon, which could be one of the reasons why it’s so easy again for floods to happen. please investigate!
